Trip Details:

Passengers begin by boarding a vintage train for a trip over four bridges and through Missionary Ridge Tunnel.  Once arriving at the Funhouse Station, riders disembark and enter the Funhouse area.

Features include storytelling, a tour through the "gentle thrills" Eerie Fun House, hot cider, blacklight mini golf, games, temporary tattoos, coloring pages, ride back to Grand Junction, and a bag of treats for the children.  A festive Halloween experience!  The event is a little over an hour and a half in length.  The fun house is a 20-room, 2,000 square foot "old time" fun experience.

This family-friendly trip will get your fall started off right.  Something different for families to enjoy together!  Designed for families with younger children, it is NOT a haunted house and you will not be scared by anyone jumping out from behind a wall!  The entire family will enjoy the evening with a train ride, storytelling, indoor blacklight mini golf, temporary tattoos, cider, and a walk through the Fun House with each room themed a little differently with special lighting, interesting decorations, and many surprises!  All children holding a Halloween Eerie Express ticket can pick out a mini pumpkin and a goody bag, too.

What time?  Departures are 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on most Fridays and Saturdays in October, with an additional departure at 3:35 p.m. on Saturdays only.  This earlier time is ideal for those families with young children who need to be in bed early!

Children are encouraged to wear their costumes, and we'll have a contest with prizes for the best costume (boys and girls.)

Around Grand Junction Station you can enjoy a petting zoo and pony rides from 4:30 until 7:30 on Eerie Express nights.  The petting zoo is open to everyone, and feed cups are sold for a dollar.  Pony rides will be available for a small additional charge.

Try our Depot Deli inside Grand Junction Station where you can get a good supper!  Extended hours are featured just for Eerie Express passengers until 7:30 p.m.

Trains consist of enclosed, climate-controlled coaches pulled by a vintage diesel locomotive.


Cost:

Tickets are $23 each for ages 2 years & up and should be purchased in advance to avoid disappointment.  However, as long as the trains aren't sold out in advance, "walk-up" tickets will be sold at the depot prior to each departure with the best available for the 7:30 p.m. departures.
